I love being pregnant (when I'm not sick and being constantly poked and prodded). So much so that there are things I'll really miss after it's over. A lot. Being pregnant tends to give you a free pass to do/say/act in ways that might never be acceptable outside of your obvious pregnancy state. Many of us start to enjoy these little "freedoms" while we're given the chance. At 19 weeks, I'm finding myself getting used to this pregnant way of life, and it's going to be hard to change back to normal. The majority of them seem to put a bit of a - damper - on the rest of life. When you're back to your post pregnancy state, you might start to wonder why anyone would willingly go back or long for the days of no cravings, regular jeans, and dull hair. These are my (and I know many others) experiences during pregnancy that *ruin* the rest of an un-pregnant life. Enjoy! - By Diana Stone
